I’m saddened that I didn’t learn of Hanne Mi’s passing until yesterday, so unfortunately I missed her funeral. I’m sure that it was an uplifting celebration of her life because that’s how she lived it. I met Hanne Mi through our book club at the Marenda. We only spent 20% of the time discussing the book, the remaining time was strictly personal-and it was always a delight to hear Hanne Mi speak about the Johannessen family! My heart is broken that I won’t be seeing her down by ocean or at the pool any longer-and the lights at the Marenda have certainly dimmed. I found a poem that fits my feelings about this wonderful, remarkable woman:
God looked around his garden
And found an empty place,
He then looked down upon the earth
And saw your pretty face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest-
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best!
He saw your road was getting rough,
The hills were hard to climb…
So he closed your weary eyelids
And whispered, “Peace be Thine.”
It breaks my heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone-
For part of me went with you
The day God called you home.
Hanne Mi is now our guardian angel-the brightest star in the sky twinkling above us-what a blessing.
